Good to be back on ranch after almost an year. I cleared a SCJP an year back and now its time to step up for SCJD.
For SCJP I extensively used Kathy and Bert's book which is I think default n popular choice. I really loved this book. For practice I referred :Dan Chisholm's Study Guide. That was really cool. I scored 90
I just finished reading the objectives n other basic info for SCJD. Now I want to settle with some book before I take the Programming Assignment. I know there is a section for SCJD in KnB's book also. But just wanted to know if there is any famous/popular choice of book for SCJD also?
Also I want to read through some more sample SCJD Programming Assignments apart from those given in the Cathy's book?
I'm going through the posts here. Any help\links\feedbacks\pointers\comments on the book or sample assignment appreciated.
You might be interested in reading the JavaRanch SCJD Reading Materials FAQ. It lists several books and resources for SCJD, and provides URLs for some sample downloadable chapters. You might want to look at them first and/or go into a bookstore and read parts of several books, to see which ones suit you best.
